Meaning of Employee Provident Fund

EPF is Social Security and Timely Monetary Assistance to Industry Employees and their legal heirs. It is governed by The Employees Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952. The Act provides for the institution of provident funds, pension fund and deposit-linked insurance fund for employees in factories and other establishments. It extends to the whole of India. The following three schemes have been framed under the Act by the Central Government:
(a) The Employees’ Provident Fund Schemes, 1952;
(b) The Employees’ Pension Scheme, 1995; and
(c) The Employees’ Deposit-Linked Insurance Scheme; 1976.
The three schemes mentioned above confer significant social security benefits on employees and their dependents..

Members may be benefited for their needs such as 

(i) Retirement
(ii) Medical Care
(iii) Housing
(iv) Family obligation
(v) Education of Children
(vi) Financing of Insurance Polices etc.

Wage Limit

From 01.09.2014 onwards, wage limit is Rs. 15000/- Per month. So the person who is getting wages above Rs. 15000/- is outside the purview of Employee Provident Fund Scheme.
